Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pam101 Clean, quiet and accomodating
After a busy day of travelling, the London- Southwark provided a quiet base to prepare for a busy working day. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful; my room was quite spacious, extremely clean and thank goodness, very quiet and guess what - the shower worked - plenty of hot water and no blocked drains and excellent lighting in the bathroom! Good location and good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank Traveller great staff, good location, great value
Londoners have always been polite, helpful and friendly people, and the staff in this hotel are no exception. Very good quality breakfast (I'd rather have potatoes instead of beans, and a fruit salad instead of grapefruit but that is just because I'm not easy regarding food choice). The room was very ok, comfy and noise-proof. My wife and I were very satisfied with everything and will definitively return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chenieck The most accomodatiing, caring staff.
I stayed there for two nights becuase of a conferrence thet I had in the vicinity of the hotel.Great location, walking distance to Tate Museum, London Bridge, conference centers and more.Both Blackfliares and Southwark tube stations within 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The train station at Blackfliars is even closer which makes it a great location for whoever-as I did-needs to get to Luton.
A non frill hotel, with basic clean rooms , comfortable beds and great free breakfast.There is no restarant in the hotel but it is located 2 minutes walk from Blue Fin Building with nimerous choice of restaurants as well as a chinesse and French simple restaurant accross the street from the hotel.
What however makes it so very special is the staff.Unbelievable.They remenberred my name, my room number and stood ready to do whatever it takes to cater to my requests in a friendy, caring accomodating way, as if their all purpose was to assist me.A real homey feeling.I have stayed there twice during 2003 and I will defenitely come back.

Our stay in the hotel was very good in all aspects except we were disappointed on two counts.
1) Breakfast was monotonous ,same menu everyday. Asked for boiled egg for a 5yr. old but was not obliged.
2) We were there during Christmas for 7 days with a 5 yr. old. A complimentary gift should have been given to children below 10yrs. on Christmas Day as a goodwill festive gesture.
Breakfast on Christmas Day should have been special.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by H125 All was well except breakfast
The small room was to be expected for a European hotel at this price level. The room was clean, bed was comfortable. Location is excellent. The staff was friendly and always wiling to help.
However, breakfast was quite terrible. The scrambled eggs looked nothing like eggs and had no taste. The sausages were overcooked and dry. The croissants were old and refrigerator-cold. We stayed a total of four nights at the hotel, and every morning the breakfast was just as bad as the day before; coffee was the only thing worth going down for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daver50 Happy New year !!
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Southwark over the New Year Holiday. It was a fantastic location to base ourselves with good links to the underground network and walking distance to see the fireworks at midnight.
The staff were all very helpful, and supported every request we made of them. Where they could not answer a question on things happening in London, they took the time to find out and got back to us.
The room was clean and practical, as with most hotels in the ICH chain. The only downside was the rooms only take 2 people, and as a family of 3, it made things difficult.
Thank you and Happy new Year !!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dizzy blonde Clean and comfortable hotel, can recommend staying here
Everywhere was very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable with crisp bed linen. The triple glazing ensured a quiet room with a good night's sleep. The breakfast was satisfactory, with fresh fruit, yoghurts, pastries, sausages and very nice scrambled egg - and all replenished at regular intervals. The prices in the small bar were very reasonable. There are good bus/tube links within a 10 minute walk, so you can stay in this quiet area yet get to major sights/venues very easily. Good restaurants within a 10 minute walk, and a Tesco Express five minutes walk away was very convenient. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shields28 Fantastic Family Stay
We went here on the weekend between Christmas and New Year so hotel prices were expensive however Holiday Inn Express was very reasonable and in a good location so we thought we would give it a try. The staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel is in a good location situated between London Bridge Station and Southwark tube station. The bus for Covent Garden also stopped outside the hotel with Borough Market just a short walk away. We took our little girl and on numerous occasions we have turned up to a room only to find our bed made up and not a third however this was not the case with this hotel which after a 5 hour journey down which normally takes 2 it was very welcomed. The room was clean and in a quiet area however the only criticism is that there was not a plug near a mirror so I struggled to do my hair so take an extension lead case space willing. Overall, would recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jonesfamilies Great location, very clean
We stayed here for 5 nights during our London visit. Great hotel located about a 10-minute walk from the Southwark Station on the Jubilee Line. Rooms were clean, staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms were a little small for more than 2 people once you open the sofa bed but we didn’t spend much time there. There are only a few restaurants in the area. Free Breakfast was very good with eggs, sausage, cereals, and pastries. The coffee machine makes a great Latte!!! They have a computer where I could print my train tickets. I have no complaints!! Would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnneNCSO Excellent, helpful staff
We stayed a week at Christmas 2013, needing 2 rooms for us and our children, so we wanted a convenient location at an affordable price. This more than fit the requirements. It was a 10 minute walk to the Tube, a 30 minute walk to Westminster Abbey & Parliament.
The rooms aren't huge, but sufficient. The beds are comfortable, water pressure is great. My only complaint about the room is that the lights are pretty dim, making it difficult to read if your eyes aren't great (like mine).
The staff was fabulous -- very friendly and helpful every step of the way. Breakfast was very good.
We would definitely stay here again. We stayed here for a couple of nights 4 months ago, too. Highly recommended!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ballatom Nice staff, nice room, horrendous night
The hotel is very well situated, within walking distance of St Paul and Tower Bridge.
The staff is very nice and the rooms are fair for the price, taking into account that you are in London.
Everything went fine until 2 or 3 AM when the heating started making as much noice as an alarm clock. After I opened the valve, let the heater warm up and become silent again to finally close the valve, we could fall again into sleep... till it did it again. Eventually, at the 3rd episode, I went to the desk at 4:30 to get another room where we finished the night. In the morning, our kids that were staying in another room on the same floor told us that their heating had been noisy too during the night, though not as much as ours.
As I said, nice location, nice staff, bad night. If you go there, make sure the heating problem has been fixed !

The overall expierence of staying at the hotel was very good,the staff was very co-operative. The room was very clean and cosy.
It was very clean. Inspite of being a pure vegetarian we could enjoy a nice stomach full breakfast. And in every way a fulfilling experience.

We only stayed for one night but the hotel was clean and facilities were good, breakfast was good too. The only problem was the noise in the morning from the construction site next door which started at 8am! We did mention it on checking out as we were asked how our stay was, apparently they had been asked not to start works until 10 am at weekends but obviously didn't take much notice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michaelinbanbury Good Location, Hotel Bright and welcoming.
Stayed here the night before going on Eurostar to Christmas Market in Brussels. If you stay here you must go to Borough Market by London Bridge, for the pubs, restaurants & People watching. different nights of the week have different produce on display in the centre. Eat at Bills or the main Clink St Restaurant.

Just spent a long weekend at this hotel with my 12 year old son and 20 year old daughter. Great location easy access to tube station and walking distance into the city centre.

The complementary breakfast was welcomed with such a great variety. No downsides at all to this hotel. We will definately be returning again and will recommend to friends. Great hotel, even better price!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AdieT CONSTRUCTION WORKS AT THE REAR OF THE HOTEL
This is a well located hotel, within walking distance of some of the major sights in central London. I stayed on business and arrived late - friendly staff, welcoming reception area and a clean and tidy room however, I woke at 6:30 to the most awful noise. The windows of the room were literally shaking. I complained to the staff and thankfully, Charlie the customer services manager was really apologetic and extremely helpful, pointing out that although it’s not the hotel’s fault, he was doing his best to manage the situation.
I recommend either a room in the front of the hotel or avoid for the time being until the work is finished.

Generally pleasant stay with rooms being very comfortable...beds good...the only downside was the so called free breakfast as I had to ask for replenishment of many items which had run out...This took far too long and a fair few people werent impressed . Dining area refurbishment very poor in my opinion ; bare walls floor and mostly plastic uncomfortable chairs . the previous decor was really nice...will not be returning...

We stayed for two nights at the holiday inn express in Southwark, we found the staff very welcoming friendly and helpful. It was easy getting around London as we were very near to at least two tube stations. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others and would certainly stay here again.

I stayed here with my 2 sons. One of whom has autism. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the minute we arrived. Staff are very friendly and keen to help with my questions about onward travel. Our room was very comfortable, with everything we needed. The shower was really good and spacious. Luggage room available, which I didn't need on this occasion, but would definitely be useful on future stays. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others
